Does your garden call out for you to shoot their petals of spring turned fall? Photography tutorials that inspire also help me to grow. This is my story of flower photography on a wet Vegas day…
A few weeks ago, here in Vegas, there was a down pour of rain. They call it monsoon season, when the earth seeps with moisture and floods ensue. One day, after getting the kids in bed for a nap, I sat at my computer to finally get some work done. The rain had stopped, but a few scattered rain drops continued to fall from the patio’s trellis, rhythmically landing on my pretty white roses. The rhythm was calling my camera to come outside and take a break. And so I did.
This is my second attempt at shooting flowers from photography tutorials that inspire. I love shooting the blooms that belong to our home; there is something nostalgic about documenting a season that grows within your own space. I used my broken 50mm for these shots and can totally see its lack of sharp focus. Hopefully I’ll be the proud owner of a macro lens one day, or least a 50mm that isn’t broken. In the meantime, I’m happy to be the proud owner of these beautiful blooms for the next couple weeks.
